Renewable Energy

Farmers and land managers are well placed to generate clean, green power – harnessing the sun, wind, water, farm by-products and energy crops.

Lower technology costs and the drive to find alternatives to fossil fuels are maintaining interest in renewables, despite the fall in subsidies on offer in this area.

Renewable energy projects can simultaneously meet commercial and environmental objectives, with technologies such as solar panels for electricity and heat generation from biomass

delivering more predictable returns than some agricultural commodities.
